The Balmoral cruise ship leaves Southampton for the official Titanic centenary voyage
Relatives of those who travelled on the Titanic have set sail to the North Atlantic site where the liner sank, commemorating the passing of 100 years.
MS Balmoral left Southampton docks for a cruise which will retrace the route of the ill-fated liner's maiden voyage.
One century on, passengers have safety at the forefront of their minds, heeding advice from the experts to make sure their
cruise travel insurance is up to date and valid for the journey.
During the 12-night cruise, passengers will be served food from the Titanic's original menu and a five-piece band will recreate the soundtrack of the era, honouring the ship's musicians who are said to have played until the vessel sank.
Some 1,309 passengers are on board the cruise, with around 50 being directly related to an original passenger.
A memorial service will be held next weekend to mark the moment the ship sank.
